Weighting SPA data [message #20021] Wed, 16 September 2020 15:14 Go to previous message

I am writing to ask about the sample weighting and survey design for the ANC observational and exit interview data for Kenya (2010), Tanzania (2014-2015) and Malawi (2013-2014).

For the Kenyan data, I believe the PSU is facility and the strata is a cross between region and facility type. Thus, I am wondering if the order to set the SVY command, the correct code is:

egen strata=group(c001 c007)
svyset [pw=wgt], psu (c004) strata(strata) singleunit(centered)

I was also wondering if the PSU and strata are the same for Tanzania and Malawi.

Thank you in advance for helping.
